Long term report: Wheely clean

Published: 27 October 2015

If there’s one thing I’ve always found a little odd on motorcycles, it’s the use of matt-finish paints. Add that finish to a fiddly area to clean – like wheels – and it really can be quite aggravating. But that’s exactly what BMW have done with their HP wheels for the S1000RR. When they’re really clean, they look exceptionally good, and classy – but getting them spotless takes hours of dedicated graft. Stunning as they are, I’d prefer an easy-clean gloss finish every time.
